New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that India’s fight against the coronavirus is “people-driven” and is being fought by the masses and the administration together.

“India’s fight against coronavirus is actually people-driven. This fight is being fought by the people and the administration together. Every citizen as a soldier is fighting this war,” Prime Minister Modi said in his monthly ‘Mann ki Baat’ address. The Prime Minister said a vast country like India which is starving for development and fighting a decisive battle against poverty has only this option to fight against coronavirus.

“I am confident that in future, whenever there is a discussion regarding the pandemic there will be a reference to Indian’s people-driven fight against the infection,” he said
The Prime Minister said today’s Mann Ki Baat is taking place “when we are in the midst of a ‘Yuddh’ (war).”
